Motherboard won't detect HDD/SSD

Okay so I've been at this for about a week and it's been a pain in my butt. So I installed a new motherboard, and CPU and since Gigabyte only has .exe installers and not .inf files I can't install the chipset to my old windows file. I had to install it to a new drive which took meffect 3 days to get it to even detect that drive. Now it won't detect anything but my m.2 drive.

CPU: I7 7700k
Mobo: Gigabyte GA-Z170X-Gaming 7 ATX LGA1151 Motherboard
Ram: 32gb Team Dark
SSD: Samsung 850 evo 500gb
HDD: Hitachi 7200rpm 1tb,
Hitachi 7200rpm 120gb,
M.2: Intel 512gb
GPU: Gigabyte g1 gaming 1060 6gb

  1. An M.2 ssd will disable sata ports.

    So, if the Samsung and the Hitachi are in those ports, they'll be disabled.

    Change the sata ports, that they're plugged into

    And if youre planning on using an hdd with an OS on it. Bad idea, do a clean install
  2. In the mobo manual it says the M.2 disables sata express ports which I am not using, so I figured that was not thenough problem. And I know about the clean install I just forgot to backup some filessential which is why I installed it to the other drive that now doesn't want to work, but I'll try removing the m.2 and see if that fixes it.
